Though sunlit fields are typically the site of football games and cow sunbathing, at Fairfield Extreme Sports, they serve as the grounds for colorful paintball skirmishes. Players charge the outdoor fields, quickly diving behind inflatable obstacles to shield themselves from the incoming barrage of paintballs during games of speedball and recball. Throwback Thursdays give players a taste of old-fashioned paintball matches that feature semiautomatic markers and the traditional postmatch exchanges of, "Good show, old chap."
Solano Christian Academy was founded in 1977 as an alternative to the public school system in the Solano County area. Today, the academy continues to educate children in the core areas of reading, writing, and arithmetic, all while creating an environment that encourages academic, spiritual, and social growth. To ensure it never diverges from that path, SCA also operates under the direction of a private school board instead of leaving decisions to the fickle nature of a paper fortuneteller.
Consider yourself warned: Demon Dreamz is not for the faint of heart. Within the child-unfriendly confines of Caretaker Hill, an otherworldly evil lurks. Demonic clowns creep through darkened corridors, while devilish dolls sneak up behind unsuspecting guests. Lights strobe on and off as carnivorous denizens, their rotting flesh dangling from their elbows, seek out their next meal. Breathless guests emerge relieved to have escaped the terror. The only thing that may help them sleep at night after the experience is knowing part of their admission price went toward helping military families in need via Travis Fisher House at Travis AFB and Fairfield PAL.
The striped barriers hugging the edges of Driven Raceway’s winding track quickly mutate into a black-and-red blur as emission-free electric go-karts zoom around it at speeds of up to 45 mph. Though the vehicles' superb cornering and speedy acceleration respond swiftly to their drivers' actions, the staff also mans electronic controls that can override their commands, minimizing the risk of colliding karts and clashing radio stations. Off the track, the center maintains the racing theme, peppering the mini-golf course with cars that glow under black lights and painting checkered-flag lines on each of the bowling alley's lanes.
Walking onto one of Scandia Family Center’s two award-winning golf courses feels like traversing a quaint corner of the Scandinavian countryside. Shingled houses and windmills dot the landscape, which kids of all ages eye while zooming past in a go-kart or bumper boat. Inside, toddlers climb, crawl, and slide in the three floors of the clubhouse, and up to 25 players take aim in the Lasertron-designed laser-tag facility. Before leaving, kids and adults face off at more than 200 arcade games or grab a bite to eat at the snack bar.
